Registration for the 2009 RWA National Convention just opened. My phone just buzzed at me – Go register! and the site’s not loading. How many people want to go to this conference, anyway? Get outta my way!
How long until actual registration is possible?
ETA: “We are experiencing technical problems. The site you requested will be back up soon.”
RWA Conference Registration : it’s almost like being FARKed or slash-dotted, only not.
ETA: I’m in! But actually selecting the conference was a challenge for me. I had to go to “Store” then “Events” and then select the conference (the one with the really big price tag – heh heh, You can’t miss it).
ETA: DANG. Now I’m being told I have to select an event fee, but there are none available to me. Gah! This is frustration, and I can’t imagine how much it must suck to be the switchboard operator at RWA this morning. I have so been there.
ETA: Ok, not enough caffeine. I had to tell the site I was a “member” (huh huh) and then wait for it to reload with the event option. That was the hold up – the reloading. Poor server. It must be crying.
ETA: We did it! We did it, yeah, we did it! Lo hicimos! We registered for RWA and reloaded the web page – we did it! We did it, yeah, we did it! We selected our members and paid $400+ – we did it! We did it, yeah, we did it! We’ll go to DC and have a kickass time – I hear the bar is extra large and that’ll be fine! We did it, yeah, we did it!
ETA: If you’re looking to make hotel reservations, the form is now online and RWA will contact you for credit card information is you use the online form.
